Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Creating & Using A Trauma Narrative In Psychotherapy

trauma narratives “What is a trauma timeline?”

That’s the question I often hear when I get calls coming into my office on scheduling trauma counseling.

Trauma narratives are not necessary for the successful treatment of trauma-related symptoms.

However, they can be a powerful component to your overall treatment.

In this video, I discuss trauma narratives and walk you through how to create one.

Trauma narratives can be an important component to your treatment.

It can lead to healing, growth, and change throughout the counseling process.

Trauma narratives can be done with a trauma therapist who has experience in creating and leading exploration of trauma timelines.

It’s important to also have coping skills and a safety plan in place while creating your timeline.

Safety plans and crisis plans ensure that you have to skills necessary to cope with flashbacks, depression, etc.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please continue to stay safe!
